Phototherapy is the use of IPL or laser to rejuvenate and improve sun-spots and freckles usually due to sun damage. The most common pigmented lesions associated with photoaging are sun-spots, freckles and mottled pigmentation. Other conditions include melasma, postinflammatory hyperpigmentation and poikiloderma of Civatte. A photofacial or phototherapy with IPL or laser can reduce the appearance of these pigmentations.
Sun spots are dark brown in appearance and will darken and increase in size and number with chronic sun exposure. They are typically located around the periphery of the face, neck, chest and other sun-exposed areas of the body.
Freckles are similar to sun spots but smaller, they darken in summer and lighten in winter.
